Early Sunday morning, a fire broke out at the A&W restaurant on Route 9 in Lake George, leaving the building badly burned. This popular drive-in is a landmark in Lake George and a favorite among both visitors and locals. 


A graduation party took the worst possible turn on Saturday when a young man jumped off the pier into the water at Shepard's Park beach in Lake George and never resurfaced.

Invasive species awareness is a topic that has been front-and-center in Lake George for a long time due to the widespread desire to protect the lake. We're currently in the middle of New York State's second Invasive Species Awareness Week that's seeking to educate people about the dangers of invasives and how to prevent them.

In honor of Invasive Species Awareness Week, there are many workshops and events planned. One of the local events is a daily "Ask-An-Invasive-Species-Expert" series at the Lake George Visitor Center, where people can learn about threatening species, view samples, and learn about protective measures and regulations.

Although you might have Martha's hours of operation and your favorite flavors memorized, we've got 5 fun facts that you may not know!

We all know people come from near and far to cool off in Lake George during the summer. However, people aren't the only ones who enjoy taking a quick dip in the lake... A four-foot long timber rattlesnake was seen cruising through the water last week!
